Happy Halloween! Keep in Touch! Have a GREAT summer!

Jordan and I were yearbook pictures this year for Halloween. I thought they turned out pretty good! Everything came from Dollar Tree, except our clothes and Jordan's wig (no, that is not a real fro, sadly).

Now allow me to present the various yearbook picture categories:

The Blinker

The "Where is he looking?"

The Chin-to-Face

The "I just started to say 'cheese' like you asked and then you took the picture...jerk"

The Over-Excited

I'm still debating whether or not I should wear it to our huge company party at work. It is during work hours, and none of my co-workers in my program are gonna dress up. I may just chicken out. We'll see...

State Fair

Every Fall, the Tulsa State Fair comes to town. Jordan and I love to go. I love it for the animals, and Jordan loves it for the food. The fair is a time when Jordan feels we should "let loose" in regards to calories, and money to pay for said calories. Within twenty minutes of being in the fair, we spent $20 on food. By the end of the night, we had shared a philly steak sandwich, a large corndog, a funnel cake (my fave), a deep fried s'more, a lemonade, and a plate of curly fries. We were feeling both elated and distgusted.

"Let's get this party started!"

"Please bless this deep fried cake smothered in sugar to nourish and strengthen our bodies..."

"AMEN! Now it's healthy to eat!"

The only thing better to do at the fair than feed yourself is feed animals. They have a cool petting zoo where you can purchase overpriced animal food. I. LOVED. it. I was far more excited to pet and feed the creatures than most of the kids in the area. They had several different types of animals- deer, llamas, pigs, a kangaroo-like thing, and approximately 1000000 goats. Jordan was my photographer since he doesn't share the same enthusiasm for touching communal animals (weirdo). We couldn't have the flash on, so some of them were a bit blurry.

This poor guys was so scared. He just sat in the corner with his legs literally between his legs. :(

It tickled when they ate out of my hand.

Overall, we had a great time. We have no clue whether or not this was our last Tulsa State Fair. It will definitely be something that I miss.

Chase and Jessica's Wedding Trip

This fall has been pretty friggin sweet. I do not miss Oklahoma summers one bit. Plus, Jordan and I have had some fun happenings taking place since this season has graced us with its presence.

At the end of September, I was able to have a 4 day weekend in Salt Lake City for my cousin's wedding. (Leave it to me to take my camera and somehow not have one single picture of the bride and groom. Whoops.) I was able to hang out with my parents and sister, which was a bonus. The wedding was lovely, the reception was so fun (can you saaaaay photo booth??), and it was so cool to see all my extended family from my dad's side.

 All the girl cousins from my dad's side of the family! Love them!...even though they are all taller than me.

Molly and I had a little too much fun with the photo booth at the reception. I think we went in a total of 5 times. Here are some of our highlights:

My cute parents <3>

These four go in a sequence...yes, we are dorks.

 We also got to spend the day with some of our family on my mom's side.Uncle Tim and Aunt Denise have property where we got to go feaux camping. We shot guns, did archery, hammocked (new verb), and ate. It was glorious.

"I volunteer as Tribute!....Oh, wait. I suck at this. Never mind..... Uh, I'm going to lay in hammock instead."

Our cousins also have quite the zoo at their house. They have one dog, 2 guinea pigs, one gerbil, and a bearded lizard. It was fun being around animals for a change. Can't wait to get a pet someday!

Wearing a live lizard. Lady Gaga got nothin' on me.  
Overall, it was a fantastic kick to Autumn!
